"If you want to succeed at any job, make yourself invaluable."

My goal is for my clients to never want to plan a trip without me because of the value I offer:

  • Inspiration and Expertise - I travel extensively and usually have personal experience to help inspire your itinerary. If not, I have a team of travel experts who provide personally-vetted recommendations and local relationships. 

  • One Less Thing On Your Plate - So many options, so many decisions, so much time to weed through it all! Let me take this off your plate! I build a custom itinerary with curated experiences for a vacation that wows! 

  • Peace of Mind - Given the complexity and uncertainty of traveling today, personalized service is priceless. I help you navigate the ever-changing COVID regulations and advise you on travel protection. And I am your fixer if problems arise! Personal service vs. the robot at the other end of the search engine 800 number? No contest!

  • VIP Status - My partnership with Travel Planners International and Signature Travel Network allows me to design vacations that hit the sweet spot of luxury and value with exclusive perks, special discounts, and VIP hookups that can make your vacation spectacular!

Custom Itineraries, Unforgettable Memories

I specialize in what I like to call "Active Family Vacations" - trips full of adventure that challenges, beauty that astounds, and memories that last a lifetime. While I love relaxing on a beach, it's the adventures that stay with us. My favorite specialties are the Islands of Hawaii, Alaska, the Caribbean, and National Parks! As the world opens up, so are my specialties, and I'm branching out with Europe, Africa and the Philippines!

The Islands of Hawaii

Hawaii is on everyone's vacation dream board for good reason - miles of white (and black!) sand beaches, perfect weather all year round, a welcoming and laid back culture that helps you unwind and feel right at home, and an exotic "foreign" vacation with the convenience of U.S. travel. As a Certified Hawaii Destination Specialist and a frequent visitor myself (trip #6 is in the works!), I can help you decide which islands to visit, offer fantastic deals on the best resorts, and curate top adventures as well as "off-the-beaten path" gems to help build your dream vacation!

My husband lived in Alaska when we met, and while he couldn't convince me to move there, I am on board for multiple visits! Which is a good thing given how vast Alaska is - you need time to see it all! My favorite option for families is an Inside Passage cruise with custom excursions for kayaking, glacier hikes and dogsledding, plus a Land add-on to experience Denali National Park - hiking, biking, flightseeing, rafting, ziplining and more! Whether by boat, air, train, or land, I can help you build the Alaskan adventure of your dreams!


National Parks Itineraries

I can efficiently package your trip into a custom itinerary where you see the most parks and find the best adventures within each park - with minimal drive time. Some suggested "park bundles" include:

  • Yellowstone, Grand Teton + Jackson

  • Yosemite, Sequoia, Kings Canyon + San Francisco

  • Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, Antelope, Sedona + Las Vegas

  • Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise + Calgary

  • Olympic + Seattle + Vancouver

  • Acadia/Bar Harbor + Kennebunkport + Portland

  • Glacier National Park - all on its own because it's so amazing!
